Fall for Bath this coming season, in the beautiful city that embraces Autumn with a golden glow. Here are our top tips for enjoying all Bath has to offer:
Follow your walk with a hearty pub lunch
Wholesome, warming food is the perfect accompaniment to a day out exploring in crisp, autumnal weather. Venture out of Bath city centre for a walk to the countryside, where you’ll find Lansdown Hill and Bath racecourse. The Blathwayt Arms, a quintessentially British pub, is perfect for hungry walkers requiring a relaxing finish to the day.
Despite the weather turning colder, when the sun is shining, being outside and wrapped up warm is an unbeatable feeling. Enjoy any variety of Sunday roast with a great city vista from the rooftop dining terrace at Hall and Woodhouse. Located just off the upper end of the high street, this popular venue with quirky décor offers reliably good food and a jolly atmosphere.
The Bath Film Festival
Throughout the seasons, the Bath Film Festival plays any manner of popular films, documentaries, and previews across various venues throughout the city. Finding Dory, The Lady in The Van and Spotlight are just a few of the screenings available to watch. Some viewings are pedal-powered by bicycles in outdoor venues, whereas some showings are in the much-loved Little Theatre Cinema of Bath.
